Bradley Manning, 22, was serving as an army intelligence analyst in Baghdad when he was taken into custody by military police in May this year and transferred to Kuwait. Charges against him were filed this month and, if they stick, he could face 52 years in prison.
As to whether he was the source for the new trove of documents, Assange noted: "There's no allegation, as far as we can determine, that this material is connected to Mr Manning."
If Manning was the source, he might have got away with it had he not struck up a cyber-relationship with Adrian Lamo
, a convicted hacker in California, who reported their contact to the Pentagon.
He should be shot as a traitor, not glorified like he's some sort of hero to look up to.

I think that it is up to the American people to protest Bradley Mannings imprisonment, it is the american government/military who are deciding this mans punishment, this government /military are supposed to serve the American people.
